What Houzz contributors are saying:
Relax at the tableThis elegant space looks incredibly calm and relaxing. The colour scheme is simple to make way for the natural materials surrounding the table. The designers have chosen wicker chairs, with a practical shape that would be comfy, too. Gentle lighting further softens the mood.
Wheel in a trolley or butcher’s blockIf it’s more worktop space you’re after, a superb flexible solution is the butcher’s block. Perfect for a little more chopping space, it can be moved around the kitchen, and even offers additional storage beneath it. You don’t have to get it to match your existing units – there are numerous designs available. A popular choice is the traditional model with a wooden surface and painted legs, as seen here. For a more modern approach, you could consider a hostess trolley in glamorous metal, or a stainless-steel version for a no-nonsense, pro-style kitchen.
Combine natural elementsFrench country is a style born of simplicity. None of the pieces themselves are particularly sophisticated or expensive, but, in combination, the effect is a winning one. Natural elements are always evident when you examine this look: wooden tables and worktops, woven cane chairs, linen blinds, handmade tiles and a porcelain sink. Sometimes simple is best.
